Re: FreeScan won't download to Windows 98 with IE6
Thank you for your reply ‘BalaSGS’.
Is this an official McAfee company statement that FreeScan will no longer work with Windows 98?
I suspect that a change has just been made which has inforseen and untested impact on Windows 98.
When the download fails the link ‘ActiveX must be enabled’ leads to McAfee FreeScan Help. This declares the System Requirements as:
- Microsoft Windows 98, ME, 2000 or XP
- Microsoft Internet Explorer 5.5 or later
(Note. No support for Vista or W7?!)
Unfortunately the failure mode I have reported reflects poor product quality. If only certain user environments are supported then the software should check the environment and report this.
May I suggest that, instead of dismissing the problem, the Development Team reviews the recent changes to ascertain whether a simple correction may be implemented? Hopefully the problem can be corrected!
Please would McAfee confirm the result of this review?
